Stavanger Macintosh User Group, SMUG, is a nice place for exchanging ideas and helping each other on issues regarding use of Macintosh computers. Three friends and I started the group in 1985, and even if some people leave and some new arrive, we have run the group with 4-9 meetings a year  since then. But 2020-2021 has had a corona period with few meetings. Last meeting was December 2023 and next meeting is expected 2024.

Ancestor research: MyHeritage-Frick & Relatives. Some time in the early 80-ties  I started to write down facts about ancestors and relatives. Even if the close family is small, the number of people increases really fast when going back some steps and then forward again. First much came from "Bygdebok for Nes" and "Bygdebok for Sirdal" ( and I am not through these yet), and then I came across ancestor books for the families Schanke and Frick. Both are from 1890 so many newer relatives are missing. After that advances goes slower as search in church books and people mentioned at internet takes time. The MyHeritage publishing at the web enabled cross-checking with other people searching for ancestors, and also giving my own relatives a chance of providing feedback and updates.  I appreciate the books from Justøy by Ellen Govartsen Tørgersen. The number of people increased a lot when the Garman-ancestor link was included.

IFIP have several international technical groups, and these have each a number of working groups. So Technical Group 5 have working group number 7 which was established in 1978. I have been a member since early 90-ties. I was in charge of the APMS2011 conference. It was a lot of work but great fun and much dialogue with colleagues and friends from many countries. The APMS conference in 2024 is in Chemnitz/Zwickau (Germany)
